Are you a "high-brow" interlectual broadsheet reader or a tabloid,scandal-ridden,reader ?

 

And do you read your local,town/county paper?

 

I admit I read the tabloids,but not the local "carrot-cruncher" rag !!!!

I work for a newspaper publisher so I read lots of'em... not only our own daily papers, but also tons of the local weeklies and stuff from other publishers ... though this isn't exactly the hippest industry to be in right now, I wish more people read'em nowadays instead of getting their news from teh internetz :(

Rarely these days, I might read a Sunday one, or the local rag and the free paper we get over here in the U.K. (The Metro).

I can't be too bothered these days, it's the same stories but with different names ... isn't that in a song??

Have the Daily Star, read the sport only, don`t read the local papers or watch the news on tv, not interested, don`t know what`s going on! :lol:

Same here. My wife and I have bought the newspaper about 3 times in the 6 or so years we've been together - and each time was to get the Sunday TV Guide and look at the holiday section. I have no interest in the news, in either newspaper format or 6:00pm news. Every time we go to mum and dad's or my parents-in-law I always steal the holiday section, though. :)

 

I found out the other day, even mum and dad (who used to buy the paper every single day) only buy the Sunday one now.

 

As for magazines of any description - the last magazine I bought would have been a Metal Edge about 10 years ago, or maybe a Playboy that long ago.

Well said Geoff, I think there`s enough doom and gloom in the world without reading about it or watching it on the news!

 

Now I can add Rugby League to my sports viewing :tumbsup:

:lol: Yeah, I have to admit if I ever do come across a paper in the office or what not, I'll always have a cheeky look at the sport section during footy season.

 

Yeah, I don't understand people's fascination with needing to hear/see all the latest news. For every happy or amusing story that makes the news, there is 99% depressing news. The fact that someone's death or severe injury is what makes for 99% of news is enough to keep me away from it.

No, we don't get any newspapers and I don't read any. Too expensive, too much paper to throw away in the end. But I read the news on the internet more than once a day, usually on n-tv.

    • Ridiculous. Wait until you see the kids one I'm talking about. Appallingly untruthful.
    • Carpenter Brut - Leather Terror (Synthwave) Disturbed - Divisive (Metal) Matthew Ward - Armed and Dangerous (AOR) Atomic Swing - A Car Crash in the Blue (Power Pop) Red - End of Silence (Symphonic Metal) Todd Rundgren's Utopia - S/T (Prog Rock) Black Stone Cherry - The Human Condition (Southern Rock)
    • Only caught the highlights, but man, that second goal the Aussies conceded was pure pain to watch. Still cringing just thinking about it. Shame, because otherwise they had a brilliant tournament. It would have been close to a miracle for them to get past Argentina, so I look at the team and their efforts with pride. Oh, and that last minute shot the Aussie dude had... what could have been. But yeah, they gave it a really good crack. As for my Plan B, sorry 'Mericans, but I was very happy to see the mighty Dutch get through and, as per every other world cup, lol, my interest now turns to seeing what they can do. Would actually really love to see them win the thing.  Oh, and speaking of stuff, how awesome were some of the goals from Switzerland in their match vs Serbia. Very impressive. 
    • Simple sound quality / production, but sounds nice. 
    • Nice. Yeah, I don't know mate. Of the songs I posted above, the two from the second album actually seem to be better sound quality than the first. Hard to say if that's across the board, though, or if the sound varies from demo to demo. 
    • I was trying to find the ad running here too, but also couldn't find it on the web. Some moronic thing about there being a new wave or strain or something so we should all wear masks indoors and crowded spaces. We even got a note from our school the other day that in order to go and watch a Christmas assembly the kids are doing, parents will be required to wear a mask now, because of an alleged surge of cases in the local area.  What's become blatantly obvious to me in the last few years is that we are communicated to as if we're all absolute morons. Whether it's via our government or the media, we are spoken to like braindead pieces of shit. Sadly, in many cases they're spot on, hitting their target audience. But as someone with some semblance of a brain (and not even much of it, to be fair), I just simply don't get it. 
    • Yeah, price of tickets. I just saw half priced tickets on Tuesdays for a limited time here too. I don't know what full prices are, but maybe they're only a couple of hundred dollars on Tuesdays.
    • I like it. To bad it’s just a digital and cassette release.
    • Doing you meaning Kent is the vocalist version of ADV.
